Network Codes

All Network Codes are Regulations which means that they are binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all EU Member States.
The third liberalization package (also referred to as Third Energy Package) introduced Network Codes to be developed by the European Commission, ACER, and the ENTSOs in order to implement the EU target model for the internal electricity market. There are three types of network codes, i.e. market codes, system operation codes and grid connection codes. Network Codes are a set of rules drafted by ENTSO-E, with guidance from the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) to facilitate the harmonisation, integration and efficiency of the European electricity market. Each Network Code is an integral part of the drive towards completion of the internal energy market and achieving the European Union’s 20-20-20 energy objectives.
As of now, Network Codes have been developed, so the next challenge is to implement them. Therefore Litgrid, along with other transmission network operators of neighbouring or other remote EU countries, develops specific methods and rules in compliance with the Network Codes. These methods and rules are approved by national regulatory authorities. Only the methodologies developed by Litgrid only or together with countries of Baltic capacity calculation region and approved by the National Control Commission for Prices and Energy are made public on this page.
